It was the best of times, it was the worst of times

Ah I hate the fact that I am too busy to write here right now! These are exciting times with plenty going on and therefore plenty to write about if I could only find the time to do it!!

I'll try to get back tomorrow with some (hopefully good) news.

By the way, the guy in the GODMORGON juice comercial, my goodness!! He is so hot! Hot guy of the commercial, if you happen to read this, will you marry me?

Also, a thing that bothers me like CRAZY is all the stupid fashion blogs!! For real, it is not interesting to see how you, yes YOU, have chosen to combine your absolutely completely non-personal H&M or GT clothes! At the same time it makes me want to post some outfits here every now and then...maybe I will. I know people who dress very well. I might even be one of them! So there suckers!

It's all sunshine and blue skies

Finally at home! Sometimes it is a bit tough to always be out and about and never have time to just wind down at home. Everything in my refrigerator has gone bad, just emptied it and had to throw away a ridiculous amount of food...gah, it's so wrong on so many levels!

Oslo was great though! Really great!

And it finally feels like spring is here (just disregard the huge amounts of snow that will take forever to melt)!! I mean, it has got to be spring when the trains are back on schedule and I can use my iPhone outside without freezing my fingers off!

Visited a friend I haven't seen in nearly 6 months last night. She was a complete sweet-heart and had a salad and a bottle of wine ready on the table waiting for my arrival! Very much appreciated after a hard day of work. And speaking of work...it is time to start looking for a new one...ah the agony of short term contracts...(then again, I don't think I would manage doing the same thing year in and year out).

being international

So much has happened since I last made an update here. Had some visitors from France with whom we started working on a new piece. Feeling really good about it! It is going to be a combination using dance, acrobatics and capoeira with four performers. No schedule set yet though.

Then had a visitor from Stockholm. The weekend didn't exactly turn out as we had planned, but it was more than awesome none the less! That's unfortunately all I can reveal about that at this time...

Now I'm in Oslo for four days of training. Meeting up with friends I haven't seen in a long time and also making some new friends.

Spent last night at M's place as he lives closer to the airport. Good to see him again, and very grateful for him helping me out with my French paper that was due about three weeks ago.

All and all, things are very good! The only thing not so good is that it is snowing here in Oslo. Enough already, bring on the spring!

Finnish design

Oh, forgot to mention. Went to that meeting on Monday regarding the fashion-show I mentioned earlier. It's happening! I will be directing the show with clothes from, among others, Jeti and BelliBelli. Good times!

the conceit!

Am I getting fat? That is the question right now. When pulling up my jeans today they just ripped, almost right at the crotch. Sweet. Probably not fat, just my humongous muscles tearing my clothes apart!

It's been a sweet couple of weeks. Had ten days off from work, very nice. Started working on a new project with one Finnish acrobat, one English dancer, one Brazilian capoeirista, and me. J and R came over to Finland to work with us for three days. Got some really nice material out of those days and am now very much looking forward to what is to come out of this.

Still a little bit stressed about my work situation as my contract runs out by the middle of May. What to do then!? If anybody knows of any good jobs, please let me know.

Do you people know of that "baba de caracol" cream? It's made out of snails, or the slime from snails or something and it's supposed to be super good. I bought some today since it was on offer. Hoping it will be as good as advertised.

On Friday a good friend from Stockholm is coming over to visit for a few days. Awesomeness ahead in other words!
